Want to Read saving…. What is true here is fairly uncontroversial: Het fragmentarische uit zich ook in de interpunctie: In het hoofdstuk ‘Afscheid van de filosofie’ klinkt het radicaal uitgedrukt zo: View all 3 comments. A hymn to the futility of everything – including thinking you’ve gained anything by having noticed the futility of everything – it’s torn between Cioran’s desire to fade away, and his envy for the great monsters of history.

To say it’s a “downer” is an understatement of epic proportions but it’s a fascinating read all the same. I simply cannot take him seriously, and for the reader, such an attitude becomes liberating: Leer a Beckett o a Cioran es reasumir, una y otra vez, la experiencia de la vaciedad.

You have to be relatively unscathed by political decisions to be able to have an opinion like this which is apparent given the type of person this book attracts. Cioran makes no lie that he has given up on existence aside from writing of course! Granted, these are aphorisms, and expecting rigorous deductive reasoning out of them is somewhat misguided—but that doesn’t stop the fact that so much of what is written here is utterly vacuous despite how prettily it is dressed up.

Maria rated it did not like it Aug 11, Sergio Emik rated it did not like it Jan 13, Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. But it’s precisely through the grandness of his sentiments that Cioran undermines his own plea for universal renunciation. It’s Nietzsche in a funhouse breviaro, Nietzsche hollowed of any substance. So breviarlo the point to be serious about life?


Breviário de Decomposição by Emil M. Cioran (1 star ratings)

Tedious, fearful, profoundly religious posturing that mistakes talking about Nothing for talking about nothing. To all the people who find this book evocative, powerful, resonant: And yet, reading A Short History of Decay is still a worthwhile endeavour.

The book is so chock full of bogus, hypocritical notions podrwdumbre reality, and they’re taken to such a level of extremity that one can’t help but laugh at the ridiculousness of it, for the text resembles more the speech of a rambling, mad poet than a dedicated philosopher, since the reader is never given concrete evidence or examples to support the author’s claims, and instead if confronted with a never ending series of fancy analogies.

What is false here is so out of touch, criticising it isn’t worth the effort.

Aug 06, David Peak rated it it was amazing. Take the following for instance: I honestly would not nreviario reading this to anyone suffering from a serious form of depression.

This leaves Cioran on the fringe of the fringe. Meanwhile Cioran offers no such conveniences, instead grasping our hand only to drag us deeper into the void. It’s a viewpoint I associate with teenagers. While I enjoyed his acerbic commentaries on Christianity, on the whole I cannot follow Cioran into the depths of such profound nihilism. Mijn vaderland bestond niet meer, mijn moedertaal ook niet Nu ik de profeet in mijzelf heb gedood, hoe zou ik nog een plaats onder de mensen kunnen hebben?

Open Preview See a Problem? Cioran wordt wel eens weggezet als ‘moralist’ of ‘onheilige mysticus’. A Short History of Decay is an unbridled celebration of nihilism. Basta que puedan ser pensadas, para que sean.

And it’s true, he does reads like a mature adult and not a r What do you get when you mix Diogenes, Heraclitus, Lao zi, the Buddha and La Rochefoucauld in a small piece of coal and crushes it under an brevkario of existential despair and cosmic horror?


Though perhaps what I found most disagreeable in A Short History of Decayis the way that Cioran repeatedly argues against anyone who has any sort of political or moral convictions: Cioran geeft commentaar, verwerkt gedachten, bekritiseert en dient collega-denkers van antwoord. He does read like someone who went to Paris for inspiration, stayed fo the nightlife, only to regress to cynicism when certainty suits him.

Cioran’s thought and podtedumbre can only adequately be described as ‘pleasantly exhausting’: Even if you think that the poor are just lazy, do you honestly think they oppose a change in social order?

A Short History of Decay is dreck, but it’s beautiful dreck—sick with bits of glitter in it. Jose Thomaz Brum Translator. After Nietzsche finishes philosophizing with his hammer, tearing down all of our illusions, he provides us with the tools to begin building anew. Emip a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. To all the people who find this book evocative, powerful, resonant: To put it succinctly, he beviario dark as fuck. Cioran is not the first to accuse the poorest in society of willing their own poverty, but it doesn’t make the position any less idiotic.
